The cost will vary according to your choice of platform. Moreover, it is not recommended to lose the audience of any of these platforms. This binds entrepreneurs to get separate versions for the Android and iOS platforms of their food-ordering app.
Basic Features for MVP
Every mobile app has some basic features which need to be included in the minimum viable product. In other words, there are some features that you cannot compromise with. Some of these crucial features for on-demand food delivery apps are order requests, delivery, cancellation, history, etc.
Apart from these, you will also have to include features like payment integration and online customer support chat. The inclusion of all of these features will make your online food delivery mobile app usable by the end-users.
The above-mentioned features will decide your fixed cost. You can change this cost by choosing among different mobile app development companies. If your budget allows, then you must add certain advanced features to your food app to give it a competitive edge.
Some of these features are push notifications to make your app more engaging, GPS tracking to provide real-time services, and in-app calls to make the delivery seamless as well as safe. The addition of every advanced feature will add to your cost of food-ordering app development.
When we read about these above-mentioned features, it seems that it is quite easy to create an app at a low cost. But there are more complexities involved in this decision. One of the major struggles is that we fail to choose the right mobile app development company.
A wrong decision about this can cost you fortunes. For example, every company has hiring models with their own terms and conditions. Developers’ hiring model has a great impact on your cost. Therefore, it is important to partner with a mobile app development company that is in the industry for a long time and well-known for its reliable policies.
